Dr Mike Thomson is now a Professor
I’ve just been awarded a chair in Paediatric Gastroenterology which makes me now a Professor, which is a very great honour. This doesn’t change the way I practice medicine but is just a recognition of many years if academic work. It is something which is peer-reviewed and I am delighted to have made this leap and it, I suppose, does make me sound a bit old but really hasn’t changed anything but my title. It is always nice to be recognised by ones colleagues for academic achievements, education and training and I look forward to carrying on with side of my job.
